The Ranch and Feedlot Operations Program at Clarendon College allows students who are interested in a ranch or feedlot career to gain new knowledge and technical skills needed in coping with today’s complex agricultural problems. The RFO program accepts only a limited number of students for its program. Students must apply and interview with the program faculty.

   The WRCF, the benevolent arm of the Working Ranch Cowboys Association, has as its goal to provide assistance to ranch cowboys and their families in times of need. This has been carried out through the Foundation’s crisis fund, which, to date, has distributed more than $275,000 to ranch families in need, and through the scholarship fund.  To date, more than $160,000 has been awarded in scholarships.

   The WRCA is committed to preserving the heritage and lifestyle of the working ranch cowboy, so what better way then to help a program that produces the future of ranching? So, to all members, contestants, volunteers, sponsors and continuing supporters of WRCA and WRCF, a challenge is on the table-heck who knows what doors this will open up?
